Resources: People & skills

The Glasgow BioCorridor offers one of the most valuable assets for life sciences endeavours – its people. Scotland is preparing its graduates for the demand for more highly skilled workers in the life sciences. A varied array of life science degrees are available in the BioCorridor’s higher education establishments that are building a strong local talent pool.

Glasgow and West of Scotland universities enrol more than 3,000 people in life science subjects and teach over 22,000 students in life science subjects as well as produce more than 5,700 first degree life science graduates per year (HESA). The further education institutions have enrolled 3,000 or more students in science and maths and nearly 16,000 in medical and health-related subjects.

Today more than 10,300 people work in life sciences in the Biocorridor, and labour costs in the city centre are 33% lower than London and 13% lower than Cambridge (FDI Benchmark).
